AWARENESS

We runners try our best to maintain healthy lifestyles.

Sadly, however, twin killers threaten all of us. These killers care little about age, race, religion, or economic status.

These twin killers: heart disease and cancer have impacted the lives of all of us. We, our family members, or friends have suffered their devastating consequences.

Recently I received information from Christian Pickard at Bankers Health Group.

A Patient Education Tool for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I believe, can be both helpful and instructive.

I share it with you now with the hope that it will not only raise awareness, but aid in prevention and understanding of this horrible disease.

"It’s that pink time of the year again! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the volume of stories and statistics about the disease that appear in the media this month. The news is filled with participants walking, running and golfing to raise awareness and funds for both breast cancer research and patient care.

At the same time, practitioners of all specialties can take advantage of this increased awareness to educate patients about disease mechanisms and warning signs. This infographic provides important facts, dispels a few myths and reminds your patients that early detection and better treatments do save lives."
